Dear Friends –
If you looked into the sky last night, you may have noticed a magical moon.
Interestingly enough, this lunar phenomenon has a special name. It is called a “supermoon.” The moon will be massive and bright, but what makes tonight’s even MORE super, is that it will be the second full moon in August. The first full moon of this month happened on August 1. This occurrence is extremely rare.
This full moon has one additional level of meaning. This moon is the full moon of the Hebrew month of Elul. Beautiful as it may be, whenever I see the full moon of Elul, I begin to get very stressed. This moon signifies that there are 15 days until we celebrate the first moon of the new year (Rosh HaShanah).
Enjoy the moon! May its light bring all of us a little inspiration!!
